Weekend Recap

Happy Monday, everyone! You know, I love hearing people talk about the “Weekend Recap” updates! I was chatting with my best friend yesterday, and she mentioned that itis good to see that I’m a down to earth girl. Of course, when you check out my Instagram profile, you see a beautiful “picture-perfect” portfolio. Through these personal posts, I can share personal updates and stories, the pretty and the not so pretty!

A couple of updates:
* Pixie moved in with Petrus (Juliens’ dog) — More of THAT on the blog soon! LOL! Oh goodness…
* I’m obsessed with Starbuck’s Pumpkin Chai Tea Lattes! If you like pumpkin and like chai tea, you will LOVE this drink!
* I caved yesterday after church and ran into Target, excited for the fall season! Never a good idea. It’s like going to the grocery store while you’re hungry.
* I’m considering seeing the new version of “IT” — Bad idea for someone who doesn’t like scary movies? We will find out! ;)
* I beat my fastest mile run — 7:40!! Making progress and getting back into the groove of a great workout routine!

This past weekend, I had the great privilege of photographing Chris and Lindsay’s Trump Winery wedding! Gosh, my heart continues to expand this year, full of gratitude and love for my couples!! It’s truly a humbling experience. Even after 100+ weddings, I never get enough of my job! Especially when I have the chance to meet parents and grandparents who have been married for 30+ years, and hear their stories. :)

During Chris and Lindsay’s wedding, I had the chance to work with some amazing vendors, including Josh Gooden and Sarena! If you haven’t checked out their incredible cinematology work, check it out HERE! :) They work so fluidly and love to work as a team with photographers, which is something I admire in a GOOD videographer team! Yesterday, I took the day off to spend time with my BFF and her family and boyfriend. Liz and I have known each other for more years than I can count — Since 2nd/3rd grade? It was great to kick back my feet, enjoy some wine and catch up about life. :) Speaking of school, I totally forgot that my 10-year high school reunion was this past weekend. CRAZY. Did anyone go to their own 10-year reunion? Weird to think that so much time had passed. But there’s so much to look forward to in the future!! :) Oh, and lastly, #HTTR!!!!

    Do not go see It. I did last night and it was terrifying!!!!

  • Lol! Oh gosh!!!! I was considering watching it at an outdoor movie theater so the noise isn’t so “in your face!” But this makes me hesitant hearing your opinion!

    Helen told me they have hired a person to dress up in a clown outfit at drive in theaters to scare people while watching the movie….DONT DO IT!!
